There’s nothing we’d like more than enjoying the last few days of the sun before the chill hits us. But, we’re not going to simply head to a beach and sunbathe (as much as we still love that). This fall, tree house resorts and cottages of India have been all the rave as they offer an experience much more distinguished and special than just ordinary luxury resorts. You will still have all the luxuries within arms reach. Only a few metres above the ground, and with an unhindered view of your surroundings. By Shubhanjana Das

1. Tree House Hideaway, Bandhavgarh

The Tree House Hideaway in Bandhavgarh has a uniquely special effect on its guests. It keeps you in the lap of luxury and all the modern facilities while also offering the wild and the untamed spirit of the tiger reserve. With commanding views of the fort, river, and jungle, the resort has only five tree houses and is apt for naturists, adventure enthusiasts, and animal lovers. If you get lucky, you might be able to spot a few furry buddies from your balcony, although the sight is rare.

2. Vythiri Tree Resort, Kerala

It’s not super difficult to find tree houses in Kerala, but one like Vythiri is a gem amongst gems. Its location in the middle of a thick canopy forest and a gushing stream has been garnering it the attention this gorgeous property deserves. There’s a swimming pool in the tree house, which makes it one of its highlights. Follow it up with a trek to the nearest tea estate to come back to enjoy the delectable food offered to the guests here at Vythiri Tree Resort.

3. The Machan, Maharashtra

One only has to drive a few hours from the endless traffic of Mumbai to reach Jambulne Island, one of the hottest biological spots in the country wherein The Machan has cleverly built tree houses. These are 30-40 feet above the ground enjoying forest views and enveloped by lush greenery. If you manage to leave your gorgeous residence, don’t forget to try going trekking, hiking, camping, and basically all the outdoor activities that we should be doing more of.
